How to roast asparagus

Roasting asparagus, and vegetables in general, in an oven is a super simple job. Here is how I do it.

  1. Preheat oven to 220 Celsius (425 Fahrenheit).
  2. Coat asparagus with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Arrange in a baking tray.
  3. Bake/roast in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

How to make the miso dressing

This amazing miso dressing comes together in minutes. Simply gather all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, and whisk until it comes together. You will know it’s done when the olive oil no longer separates in its own layer. :)

Save the miso dressing for other dishes

This recipe will yield a pretty generous amount of miso dressing. Actually, you will end up with about twice the amount you will need for 1 lb. (450 gram) of roast vegetables.

Personally, I love this dressing and have been using it to dress all sorts of roast vegetables. Try it with roast sweet potatoes and roast pumpkins/squashes. This dressing works great with all kinds of salads too. :)
